I have heard of it and watch the movie for some minutes, I got bored but I I researched it through the net. I am no expert on The Secret but the law of attraction seems true to its nature. We attract negative energies when we give negative energy. It is simple as that to me. Like when you smile to some people, they smile back at you. But it was or to me it is like not that possible to think the Universe as a huge catalog and you can just choose and what you want from it. I mean we should do things and work hard to have it right?

Well if you were to Have watched the whole Movie you wouldve seen the Part when the Person wished for something and the Genie said your wish is my command if you think of something positive or even negative and you have emotion or feeling behind it then it is possible it will happen to you so that is why I said it is like a big catalog because that is what one of the people said in the movie and you know you should watch it its not as boring as you think especially if you have been wanting things that you cant have!!

It's not that easy to have enough patience for some persons to watch it and to follow the steps. From this side it could also be seen as a scam ;-) If you don't have patience, you could give up easily. If you wait there might be a bigger chance that you get the things you "ordered" from the Universe. Like they say your mind must be free to accept the things you want - always -. If you think sometimes in the other, negative direction you might loose the order and you have to rethink again. The best thing you can do is - don't give up easily, only when you have other possibilities which take you to the same goal or to another goal which you haven't seen yet.

hello I learned about the law of attraction about a year ago, and at the beginning I got very excited about all that "everything is possible", the "Law" experts painted this topic too pretty, and it's actually very hard to imagine having all that promises coming into life like they said... What have been good to me, is that "Law" experts say we should be happy all the time, and be thankful for everything... that has helped me a lot... not to get the life I would like to have, but certainly has helped me to live better... I used to be very stressful... and another important point they mentioned is that we should visualize our goals, but even more important is to have the images of the goals in the most visualized places, in order to look at the pics over and over... that's is really motivating... In conclusion, I'll tell you not to trust in all that publicity that people has been putting that "Law of attraction" into, but listen to their principles and use them in your life, you'll see that your life will start to improve, you'll learn to think positively, 'cause really, EVERYTHING in life has 2 sides -positive and negative- we usually look at the negative ones only... but you'll learn how to look more and more at the positive side

I completley understand Amychen it Is hard and not as easy as it seems to just wish and then wake up and have it but thats why I have seen the movie I believe whole heartedly in it and I can go on and on about it as well. they have awesome points in that movie I actually have a gratitude rock Lol I dont think I use it as much as I should but I really Like that I can apply something so understandable in my life and its very positive as well.

Whether or not the law of attraction actually exisists or not is a largely irrelevent question in regards that the mere belief and practice of it's rules as popularised by documeteries such as 'The Secret' will undoubtidly improve your life from a philosophical point of view. The similarities between the law of attraction and much eastern spirutual philosophy are uncanny. It is not a complete answer to life but is well worth a good objective look into.

You're right, it's more about money-making than a big secret behind. Just look for some things about buddha and his teaching and then you get the information for free in the internet :-) If the person change to the positive it's ok to practice it but not when they use it more for selfish purposes. And if the persons are too impatient, it won't work, too :-) Enjoy your stay in myLot and keep on posting!

Hi cristis, I have heard of and read about the law of attraction but I have not been ably to truly get the secret it. I believe that it is true and feel that some people have mastered it. I feel too that there is more to it than first meets the eye, for example it is not all about getting material things. I think that it is a part of something much larger having to do with life as it should be lived. Blessings.

Hello Pose123, They have to link it with materialistic things otherwise it's not that easy to sell especially when they gave it the name "The Secret" :-) It's already such an old knowledge that they give out these original books for free on their webpage, why do all the persons buy the DVD/Book of The Secret? Enjoy your time in myLot!

I do watch the Law of Attraction almost on a weekly basis, One thing with this movie is that as explained by Jack that our world is a catalog where all people living under this universe cannot miss anything that they have wanted in life, and no one should worry of things geting over because we are many. The simple scenerio is mylot, many people come and after a few weeks of trial most decide to leave and a few people to go on with discussion and earn some few buck, not that because thses people cannot earn here, the things is that mylot is not just for them. The law of attraction normally help me when thinking negative just to stop and just think of one good memorable moment in my life, this normally changes my mood from negative to positive. And as they summarized it Thoughts, Become and Thanks.

Hey oderog, you really watch this every week? I would make some notes with the most important sentences and put them in my wallet, in my computer, so that when i feel like i want to change my thoughts i just look it up and i get a better idea how to handle it. You also could read some books from the Abraham Group, channels, Elizabeth Hicks, in the beginning of the distribution of The Secret, she was also named and link with the DVD. Afterwards they kicked her out because she knows more about it than these persons who made the DVD :-)

Yes, I have heard about this. In fact I have applied it to my day to day activity. Although I have not mastered it yet, but I could see that it has bring forth good effects since I started using it. I do believe that it does work and I do hope that more and more people will benefit from this.

Yes, I have heard about it. I have a dvd about this. I have also heard that there is a book about this but have not read it. Anyway, I have applied such thing in my life and I could see that it really thus bring forth a lot of advantages. Somehow it has made my life productive and enjoyable. It is really effective and I suggest that one should consider this a great tool for successful living.

Everything about the universe, the law of attraction, and ourselves is beautiful beyond belief. The problem with all of this is that it takes practice. Practice practice! You hear a blanket statement in a hot movie that says 'the universe is like a catalog' and people go OMG I get to have anything I want. The thing that's never stressed enough is that this takes practice. Once you've got it down, which I'm working on..haha...it works nicely. It's really about raising your level of energy vibration so that negative just can't get anywhere near you. Once you've mastered that, things start falling into place and it's an oh so lovely feeling! Wishing good luck and great prosperity to all!

Yes, Law of Attraction exists and works all the time. What I find works best is to follow the Buddhist idea of letting go, Be calm when deciding what you want. Write it down. Put the paper away, or destroy it. Stop thinking about it while you go through your life day to day. I've had the best results doing this. A friend of mine did it recently and now has, or is close to, having all the ideas become a reality. She is quite happy about the process. I'm too intense about things right now so I try to get myself in a calmer space before I write anything down. Hope this helps.

I came across The Secret and The Law of Attraction by accident. I was working for a book distributor, and we received so many orders for the book. I couldn't understand what all the hype was about. A friend of mine asked me to pick up the book for her (as I got all my books for 50 cents). I picked it up, but by the time I got to her, she had already purchased it at Barnes & Noble. So I kept it and read it. It sounds cliche, but it really did change my life. I was in a bad marriage, and I was sick all the time and broke. After reading and applying the principles, I got out of that marriage. I never get sick. I am financially secure. I've learned to be grateful and look at the positive of everything. I don't have any stress in my life.
